In the Jan/Feb 2015 issue of Canadian Biker we celebrate the 10th birthday of the Triumph Rocket III and explore what about this behemoth has made the machine such an icon in such a short period of time. Sure there is the huge 2.3 lire engine but that isn’t the entire story. But when it is all said and done it is good to know that not every bike of ridiculous displacement has disappeared over the past few years.
Road tested in this issue are the Cam-AM Spyder F3 which gets a brand new look, a cruiser style riding position and adjustable ergonomics, the Ducati Monster 821 which proves you can get a little Italian excitement on a relatively small budget and finally two new Husqvarnas that will be spearheading the revitalization of the brand in the Canadian market.
Our Canadian Biker touring story is a return trip to Zimbabwe by a Canadian who hadn’t been to the country in twenty years. This time he is joined by his son to find out if the roads are now safer in the African country. We also visit with Mike Holmes and look about in his very clean garage (the kind we all might aspire to), we look at a couple of very sweet custom bikes and we run into a few goats.
Enjoy Jan Feb 2015 issue of Canadian Biker. It is a great way to start off the new year!!
